From Wikimania

  • Primary target group: All, especially Global South
  • Critical issue: Not sure. COPYVIO issues?
  • Cross-Wiki significance: Yes
  • Abstract: The way it is worded comes across, to me at least, as a political protest.
  • Concept:
  • Other concerns: Not sure if this is of sufficient core interest for a Wikimania. Wikipedia , as I understand it, strives to accommodate all nations' intellectual property laws, but not to be a platform for getting them changed. I don't quite see what new editing or reading experience would be gained by those who participate at such a discussion. This possibly needs more thought and collaborative preparation for a future Wikimania that might be held in a developing economy.

Copyright laws

I do not see why another discussion of the current copyright laws will change the current copyright laws. Where is the call to action or method to change? Geraldshields11 (talk) 15:05, 21 March 2017 (UTC)Reply
